And Thank God BTW.
The important point is that it’s “Chinese scientists”, and they are going to try something radical. It probably won’t succeed, but that doesn’t matter. The age of Chinese scientists doing something exciting and relevant and important is here (although most people have no clue, sad to say), and pretty soon (5–10 years at the most) it will be obvious that the age of the US-based scientist is gone. We will have offshored Chinese teams forever, and soon it will take place over there, while we wait and twiddle our thumbs, and AI and AGI will move on over there, in China. And thank god BTW — there they have a chance to leap ahead without american CIA or DARPA in the way.
